he isn't in a stall, and the only time he is one is if I'm taking him up. He's a weaver and though he sometimes weaves in his pasture, his weaving is 100% worse in a stall. So I don't want him to wear his hooves nor do I want him to get back into thinking a stall is a horrible place.
It took 3 months for him to be able to stay in a stall quietly without me fearing for my life if I was in there with him.
He's happier outside also.
Also, yes it's on his jaw so I can't wrap it anyways.
It's fairly deep...but not like hugely deep....I'd say he went down a good 2-4 layers of his skin. I'm sure it looks worse than it is...and I having a weak stomach doesn't help haha.
I've been putting Hydrogen Peroxode on it, then applying SWAT to it to keep the bugs off. Then I put some bug lotion all over his face so I don't have to worry about flys too much.
Yes, the fly mask is off, and is going to stay off forever...he'll have to suffer muahahaha
I'm not picking at it nor taking any scab off of it. If I see some dirt or icky stuff in it I'll use a tissue and take it out gently if I can get it without taking off whatever scab is on there...if I can't get it, it just stays there. I cover the whole area with Pink SWAT (he actually looks good in pink haha...don't tell Sonny I said that
